I like the AT-ST, AT-AT, Slave I, and the Falcon.   The only OT ships I had were the Falcon, Snowspeeder, and a TIE Fighter.  The Vintage ships were a lot better than the newer ones.  Almost all of them had lights and sounds. ;D

I'd have to say my current favorite ship today would be the AT-AT.  It's just enormous, has awesome sound effects, and comes with 2 awesome figures (General Veers and AT-AT Driver).

Wow, revisiting the love of the POTF2 ship...

I have 2 that I'd label as "good".  One that I'd label great for what it is actually.

I'm a ship nut by the way, and that's my focus in customizing right now while I perfect my casting technique and ability...  

My 2 choices are the A-Wing and the T-16 Skyhopper...

The A-Wing is great  because for a 1985 sculpt the thing holds it's own against even the TIE Bomber of today...  It's deco is accurate to a film prop (Almost 100% accurate actually) and the pilot pack-in wasn't great, but there's worse.  It's based on the maquette pilot instead of the actual actor's costume from Home One or cockpit shots, so I'm still itchin' for a new and accurate pilot on the card some day.

The best thing of the A-Wing though is that it's actually a TO SCALE ship...  Not only that, it's a to-scale ship made from a vintage mold.  You REALLY don't see that ever these days, so it's a welcome vehicle to me and that's why I welcome the Saga EU deco.

The T-16 I nominate because it's scale is arguably accurate (There's 2 proposed "sizes" from ILM, and the toy fits one of the 2).  It's a new sculpt, fairly simple, VERY accurate to Luke's model he's seen playing with, and other than the cockpit interior I think it's pretty spot-on...  I even like the cockpit interior a lot, just it could be better.

Other vehicles in the POTF2 range disappoint me because of their retread feel and they weren't improved much...  Vader's TIE would get an honorable mention though as a great new vehicle from the POTF2 range.

I'm right there with you on this one.  It was hard for me to find, and at a reasonable price too.  Maybe those two are related somehow given that I passed on all the ships initially ::)

This is just a cool, cool vehicle.  Huge, maybe not quite to scale, but just awesome.  Goes well with the Action Fleet and Tomy versions for a display.  

got the AT-AT and T-16 for $70 Cdn shipped ;D

I had always wanted an AT-AT since I was a kid, so It was always my favorite.  I may have to get a vintage one, although I don't mess with vintage vehicles.  Jjust to sate the kid in me.

If I had to choose one POTF2 ship to call my favorite....hmmm... that's tough...and a tie between the Skiff and the Awing....both were awesome pieces.

Vintage choice is easy...the ATAT.....I have three vintage ATAT's ;)

Well, I would, but the Emporer had strict orders for the detachment of Imperial Forces kep those three ATAT's and soldiers implaced......Rebels are strong in that area of Hoth ;)

Oh no man, don't do that......you'll make me cry :-[

I was just teasing Brian.  But, when you decide to part with your stuff (if that ever happens), make sure I'm on the top of your list for those AT-AT's and other vintage stuff.   ;D
